New Attendee

New to the conference? Here are some tips.

Review the agenda: Chart your course by spending time reviewing the topics and presenters before you arrive. Sessions are identified by experience level, review the fundamentals or dive deeper into the topics that interest you most [B=Basic; I=Intermediate; A=Advanced; E= Executive]. With over 200 sessions presented by the best minds in the industry, if one session isn’t what you had in mind, check out a different one.

Get the App: We have an app for that! Download the App on your phone or tablet so you have everything you need. Be sure to check out the App class as well.

Registration: Be sure to review your registration materials which will have tickets that you may have purchased for specific events and your badge.

Bag: Review the material in your bag for the directory of exhibits, the program book, and other information.

Lunches: The Monday and Tuesday lunch are included in your registration fee. Wednesday lunch is an additional fee and includes a presentation and 0.1 CEU.

Make connections: Attend the general sessions and the plenary town hall debate, they’re great conversation starters. With more than 5,000 OSH pros in attendance, you could meet your next employer or employee.

Find your niche: Network with focused industry and common interest groups, from academics to young professionals.

Customer Service: You can pay your dues, adjust your address and add a practice specialty or common interest group in our customer service booth, located outside the expo hall.

Resource Center and Marketplace: The resource center, inside the expo hall, and Marketplace, outside the expo hall, are great places to meet ASSE staff and check-in to make sure you are using all your member benefits. You can also purchase the latest publications, standards and insignia items.

Career Center: A career center is available to post your resume or view job positions.

Key Issue Collaboration Sessions: It’s your chance to speak up. Key Issue Collaboration Sessions offer participants the opportunity to share lessons learned and meet others with mutual interest.

Having trouble? Ask the welcome ambassadors, stop by the information booth, the resource center and/or the marketplace.

Share your experience: When you return to the office let everyone know what you learned.
